Rehabilitated Mukul Gears Up for 2016 Polls


Tamluk: Mukul Roy, the once fallen angel has launched poll campaign for Trinamool Congress after being rehabilitated. He visited East Midnapore district on Sunday and asked the party workers to gear up for the 2016 Assembly polls.

Mukul, who undertook a sudden visit to the district and was greeted by hundreds of party workers indicating his immense popularity, however, he said that his visit is completely personal in nature.

“I have come here to offer prayers to Tilkigarh Mandir and this visit has nothing to do with party assignment.”

On the other hand, speculations are that the party high command is judging the public acceptance of Mukul as well as of the party workers through this visit.

Relation had soured between Mukul Roy and Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee over the Saradha Scam and Roy was stripped of all positions within the party. However, the recent warmth in ties between Mukul and Mamata is dubbed by many as political horse trading.
